    ScopeCoats (fabric sheaths which cover the tubing) are cool and end the irritation. Just make sure you launder them periodically.

    AND...if you don't want to spend the $6-20 for a scopecoat...then you can get the socking that is used to sheath bandages for burn pts or that are applied before plaster casts.

    Even when a couple of my "call themselves doctors but never live up to the stereotype of having a stethoscope with them always" doctor friends borrow it, I stalk them until it's returned...or they'll be writing me a check. But I'm serious.
    Been there, done that. I ALWAYS get my scope back, and freely threaten MD'S.
